The MIT Press

The The MIT Press is committed to re-imagining what a university press can be. Known for iconic design, rigorous scholarship, and creative technology, the Press advances knowledge by publishing significant works by pioneering international authors.

The MIT Press is the only university press in the United States whose list is based in science and technology. This does not mean that science and technology are all we publish, but it does mean that we are committed to the edges and frontiers of the world—to exploring new fields and new modes of inquiry. We publish over 220 new books a year and over 30 journals. We are a major publishing presence in fields as diverse as art, architecture, economics, cognitive science, game studies and computer science to name just a few.

The Gothic revival in America owes much to the works of Henry Vaughan, the Anglo-American architect whose highly original contribution consisted of dozens of churches, chapels, and school buildings in New England towns and on campuses. Vaughan also designed three chapels for St. John the Divine in New York and was appointed architect for the National Cathedral in Washington. This book presents Vaughan's life during his thirty-six years in America (1881-1917), and goes on to examine his small...

A quarter of a century after the publication of the second edition, this classic work continues to be on the reading list of graduate courses in macroeconomics. Integrating monetary theory and value theory, Money, Interest, and Prices describes the demand functions for commodities and bonds (emphasizing the real balance effect) and uses these functions to carry out a static and dynamic analysis of the central problems of monetary theory - the effects of changes in the quantity of money and...

This volume brings together for the first time John von Neumann's long-out-of-print articles on computer architecture, programming, large-scale computing, and automata theory. A number of significant papers in these areas that were not included in the multivolume John von Neumann. Collected Works (1963) have now been reprinted here. These pioneering articles - written between the mid-1940s and the mid-1950s - are of enduring value not only to computer historians but to computer scientists at...

The Crystal Chain - "Die glaserne Kette" - was a utopian correspondence initiated by Bruno Taut in 1919-1920, in which a small group of like-minded architects and artists exchanged ideas on what form the architecture of the future should take. Unfettered by the demands of practicability, the members of the group described their visions of an ideal society and of a beneficent architecture in a series of dazzling, fantastic letters and drawings.Although the letters are referred to in...

The authors of these eighteen essays have all been deeply influenced by the philosophy of architecture developed by Stanford Anderson, through his writings and through the teaching program of the Department of History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture, which he and Henry Millon founded at MIT over twenty years ago. This "school" of architectural thought views architecture as a world of inquiry and as a discipline anchored in the epistemological bases of contemporary philosophy,...

McCulloch, a professor of psychiatry at Illinois, later a scientist at the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT and author of the groundbreaking book, Embodiments of Mind (reissued in paperback in 1988), was one of the founding fathers of "Cybernetics." Along with Norbert Wiener, John von Neumann, and H. von Foerster, he sought to integrate the disciplines of neurophysiology, mathematics, and engineering in a rigorous investigation into what brains do and how they do it.

This work might have been entitled The Introduction of Planck's Constant into Mathematics, in that it introduces quantum conditions in a purely mathematical way in order to remove the singularities that arise in obtaining approximations to solutions of complex differential equations. The book's first chapter develops the necessary mathematical apparatus: Fourier transforms, metaplectic and symplectic groups, the Maslov index, and lagrangian varieties. The second chapter orders Maslov's...
